Standard Liege vs Bala Town Prediction
Standard Liege will play on the back of a loss from their domestic campaign. Since it is a narrow loss in their own campaign, it will not affect their performance in the international competition.
For a comfort, the EL qualifier fixture will help Philippe Montanier to pick up his team from the loss as they are playing opposite to a weaker Welsh side in the encounter. Bala Town is not a renowned name amidst the international clubs, nor is their league close to the competitive nature on the Belgian soil.
It has to be said that the teams opposite to the Reds in the Jupiler League have some serious squad strength, including the host itself. With that squad strength, the number of goals is likely to hike in the upcoming clash. Also, they are facing a weaker away defense at Liege.
Based on these stats, the home win in full-time with a -2 handicap for the host will probably be a suitable option in the encounter. Since the match is likely to be a high-scoring affair, the tip for over 3.5 goals will probably be the best bet.
